Or setting up a publicity stunt to wag the dog.


If it was set up, it sure did work. Go VP Go.



Lol,

Sure did. All the mueller, corker, north korea, cabinet, twitter, problems seem to fade off temporarily.

Funny story. The enemies trump is making in his party can make mueller's obstruction/ impeachment a real event.

Even the guys sucking lobby tits don't go that far.


Trump hasn't lost so far. I don't think they want to take him on.

Just to play devils advocate most people don't realize the 3rd verse of the national anthem which is not recited celebrates the killing of slaves. I would say that gives all African Americans a legitimate gripe toward the national anthem without a fool calling them unpatriotic. How about we not use an anthem that celebrated racism and slavery. Just my 2 cents..

Your wrong there is only one verse to the national anthem. Congress approved it use march of 1931. There is actually four verses to the starspangled banner. Three of these were not approved for the national anthem. Now for the third verse this was an attack on the British Navy’s practice of impressment (kidnapping sailors and forcing them to fight in defense of the crown), The british would have a couple of officers and the crew was people they forced to fight in the royal navy. Meanwhile the colonial navy was all volunteer and chose to fight the british.This was a slap at the british saying they had to make people fight for their cause.

PS interesting side note the United States requested the return of kidnapped citizens estimated to be about 6000. The crown refused to return them to the country.
Jhe. Eventually the crown releases them to British colonies of Nova Scotia, Bermuda, or Trinidad depending on if they were white, brown or black.

Bullying? What sort of Trumpflakery is this?

I do not blame the average American for what the government or the media do. I blame them, justifiably, for lying about it when it makes them bloody uncomfortable. I blame them when they refuse to accept how toxic the climate that TRUMP (not the media, not NFL players, teams and coaches, not left wing progressives, but TRUMP) has created, really is. I blame them when they refuse point blank to accept how wasteful this man is, when compared with the man who came before him, how wrong his DEEPENING of the foreign policy crisis in America is.

I blame no one but the administration itself for what it is doing, but I REFUSE to permit people to labour under the misapprehension they seem to have, that their country is going to get better as a result of electing the bloviating sack of cat vomit who currently sits in the White House. I refuse to allow people to walk around with their heads in the clouds, about the real cost of this mans presence at the top of the food chain in your country. I am not going to simply bow down to the sheer propagandism and lies being peddled which support his positions (which are uniformly unsupportable).

If you have a problem with my commentary, then you need to take a long hard look at yourself, because the only way my commentary could be damaging you, is if you have an unrealistic view of what patriotism means in ANY country, and an unrealistic view of what a President ought to be and have placed YOURSELF in a protective position, between my ire, and the thing at which it is aimed. You can try, but you will fail to make those two things my fault, or my responsibility.

What can Americans in general do about any of this? They can stop defending the centre, just because the centre happens to be the GOP this time around. They can stop defending the indefensible mutation that is their President, or his actions which do nothing more than continue the very groundwork presaging tyranny, that his predecessors engaged in. I will NOT be quiet, and I will not be silenced by claims of bullying. I will not watch people walk around mindlessly permitting themselves to be more brainwashed and incapable of dealing with reality every day. I will make a noise, and a stand, where ever and when ever that happens. I was doing it when Bush was still in office, I was doing it during the Obama Presidency, and I will continue to do it, about MANY subjects, all over the world, until the day I die. You do not have to like it, but you do have to buckle up, strap on a pair, and deal with it, because I am not going away, just because what I have to say does not meet with your approval.

Perhaps you don't understand. Impeachment is a vote. They vote with a simple majority.

Trump has only lost in my opinion. None of his policies are going to pass. The only thing he has done are the things he doesn't need to whip votes for.

Hes been a fan for decades attended multiple games. And you want to claim its a stunt? Well i dont believe it was however ill say if it was it worked. The NFL owners came out and said no protests to the anthem. And now league rules were made which will fine players and possible suspension and if a team continues loss of draft choices. So now its over


Only of the players don't go on strike... which would cost the owners (and media) hundreds of millions of dollars, and possibly deal the professional sport a death blow.
You really think the players are going to strike over their own protest? They already make a ridiculous amount of money. Up till now it hasn't been their own salaries at stake. Please dont make martyrs out of them.

This stuff is way deeper. Trump is the only President to challenge TPTB since Reagan and JFK. They fully expected Clinton to
Make it. Even the GOP tried to throw their own candidate for the sake of the Cabal. So many people just don't understand what's really happening here.

Of course you don't. You are letting your personal dislike of him get in the way of your seeing.

I am using logic. The guy has nothing in his history to show he has any awareness.

Simply calling out problems is something anyone could do.

His lack of insight and silver spoon life is a real indicator of how full of crap he is.

Your logic is flawed, and I'm pretty sure you haven't done your homework on thenpower Elites. Read Antony Suttons "Americas Secret Establishment". You can find it online. And careful with the silver spoon attack. Your inner Marxist is showing.

My logic isn't flawed.

Trump as done zero accept benefit himself.

And no I don't need some Internet propaganda to understand this.

Trump is a moron.

His lack of knowledge is very apparent.

Like say the illegals.

Wonder why he never started by going after the main problem. The employers.

I'm pretty sure you are mistaken. I'm not saying he doesn't have an ego, but I believe he truly wants to Make America Great again after the Illuminati and the Bilderbergs and the Rothschilds broke us down as much as they could.

It's nothing to do with identity politics. Dont overuse that word to apply to anything you don't like or understand. I leave identity politics to the Marxists who
Hate America and want to bring in the One World Communist Superstate.

I think he wants to be one....

And nothing in his past shows he cares about America.

From his Chinese products to destroying cities with failed casinos ..

He is scum imo.

A guy like Ron Paul would actually have the record to prove such a thing.

Funny Ron doesn't like trump much.
